I posted about the new Admiral Radley project a few days ago, but that was before NPR Music posted videos on You Tube of the band (minus drummer Aaron Burtch) performing at the Driskill Hotel in Austin, Texas during SXSW. As big a fan of Jason Lytle as I am, it's Ariana Murray of Earlimart that steals the show so far with this absolutely beautiful ballad, "The Thread". Not sure how the studio version will turn out, but this could be released as is performed here and generate more emotion than any amount of studio trickery and production could add.
This is how you do a love song without falling into sappy territory. What a heartfelt, touching lyric. Great music deserves to be shared.
